Colonel Crouch entered the USAF in August 1962 through the Air Force ROTC program as a Distinguished Graduate, University of Michigan. He served as a pilot and test pilot with experiences including Operations, Research and Development, Acquisition and Logistics. He flew over 4000 hours and had 675 combat hours in Vietnam. He served in several command and staff positions, retiring with 27 years of service.

After Air Force retirement and starting a second career, he began volunteer work with non-profit organizations. He has served with non-profits as President, International Test and Evaluation Association, Dayton Ohio; President, the International Forward Air Controllers Association (FACA); President, Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), Dayton Area Chapter; President, Greene County Tea Party (GCTP); Secretary/Treasurer Ohio Council of Chapters, MOAA; and as a precinct Captain in the Greene County Republican Party.  He continues to serve in most of these organizations as a board member. He has been highly active in churches, to include a position at Aley UMC as the Chair, Trustees, and a choir member, Lay Leader of his chapel at WPAFB over 20 years and President, Protestant Men of the Chapel (PMOC).

He brought substantial benefit to the community, in part by establishing in FACA, two Scholarships awarded annually in perpetuity for deserving children of military veterans, established a program to recognize families of FACs that died, and in MOAA he inaugurated support for the Fisher Houses, the USO Center and established a USO benefit golf tournament, now in it’s 10th year.  He led the new GCTP organization to educate, influence, and motivate citizens to preserve liberty and freedom. Educational efforts were of utmost importance. The group also provided “Candidates Night” where both Democrats and Republicans running for office could speak to the area residents. His wife, Anne, has always been an important factor in his service by supporting him, providing ideas, editing his writings, and giving moral support. Denny continues to serve his community in support of National Defense and Liberty.
